Live Stream Worship On YouTuBe
Each Sunday at 10:30, we gather to worship in one of the most beautiful and historic sanctuaries in the Saginaw Valley. What makes our worship special though is not the space, but the people. We are a welcoming and inclusive congregation and seek to proclaim the glory of God and share in the beauty of Christ’s love for all.
We offer a 5:30 pm Christmas Eve family service, and a 10 pm Christmas Eve lessons and carols vigil, featuring our Chancel Choir. We also offer a Christmas Day service when it falls on a Sunday, and during Lent, we provide an Ash Wednesday soup dinner service.
10:30 am (Sunday School provided)
Anyone who seeks the love of Christ is welcome to worship with us!

Baptisms and confirmations always occur within the context of our worship services. Weddings and funerals may be scheduled throughout the liturgical year.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Our worship follows the outline as set in The Book of Common Worship. Our Pastor and Session (“Minister of Word and Sacrament” and “Ruling Elders”) set the calendar for the days to celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
